As Kate Middleton exchanged vows with Prince William in April 2011, celebrity hair stylists were predicting her “youthful, gorgeous bridal look” would set a flurry across the world.
Colourist Johnathan Gale told Amanda Chen at HollywoodLife.com that Kate’s hair, tiara band and natural makeup combined for a “very dignified look – without appearing too stately.” Other experts described her flowing locks as elegant and true to her personality.
Following the couple’s first anniversary, ASP Photography asks Indulgence Hair & Beauty owner Emma MacDonald if the predicted flurry had influenced the hair style choices of Fraser Coast brides.
“I haven’t had anyone ask me for her hair style but some people like elements from a few different styles all out together,” Emma said. “We don’t tend to get celebrity look-a-likes as brides tend to pick a style that suits their theme and wedding dress.”
So if Fraser Coast brides are not being influenced by the royal bride or other celebrities in their wedding hair style choices, what are they looking for?
Emma says the trend for 2012 is for lots of sleek, old-fashioned looks. For some inspirational photos, here are three websites worth viewing: www.instyle.com, www.weddinghair.com, www.lovehair.co.uk/wedding-hair
If brides were unsure about what they wanted or if their preferred styles suited their overall looks, then talking to hairdressers would help give them confidence in their choices. She also recommended having a trial run.
“I would definitely recommend a trial session for brides who were unsure on what they wanted or were nervous about how it will to look all put together.
“This can be done from a few months before up to the week before the wedding.”
